Lefkosia Border - Barricaded Street
Nicosia

This is one of the barricaded streets which forms part of the border in the walled (and divided) city of Lefkosia/Nicosia in Cyprus. I am still trying to locate the exact position on google earth, since I did not have GPS with me. If anyone can help with a screenshot, please do. There is one street-sign in this panorama, but it didn't help me.

We had been on a walking tour of the city and were on our way to the Weaving Mill cafe (another panorama to come) when we stumbled across this area. The whole place was like in a time-warp, although there was also a lot of road-works nearby and also developments being built.

A great place to visit and although easy to get confused, you can never really get lost...

More About Nicosia

Nicosia, known locally as Lefkosia (Greek: Λευκωσία, Turkish: Lefkoşa), is the capital and largest city of Cyprus. It is located on the River Pedieos and situated almost in the centre of the island, it is the seat of government as well as the main business centre. Nicosia is the capital of the Nicosia District. Following the intercommunal violence of the 1960s, the capital was divided between the island's Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities in the south and north respectively. An attempted coup to unite the island with Greece in 1974 led to a Turkish invasion, leaving the capital divided since then, with Turkish Cypriots claiming the north as the capital of their own state, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) (recognised only by Turkey). On 3 April 2008, as part of efforts to reunify the island, a symbolic wall dividing the two communities at Ledra Street was opened. South of the Green Line, the population of the city is 270,000 (late 2004), while a further 84,893 live in the north.[1] Nicosia is important commercially with many shops, two modern shopping malls, restaurants and entertainment. The city is a trade centre and manufactures textiles, leather, pottery, plastic, and other products. Copper mines are nearby. Nicosia is the seat of the University of Cyprus (UCY) and four other universities. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicosia
